* The Crying Light came out on Tuesday, and I've listened to it three times so far. Upon second listen, I was really impressed, thought maybe it was as good as I Am a Bird Now, but upon third listen, I realized that I'm not all that into most of the songs. "Epilepsy Is Dancing" is incredible (which is why I played it today), but it's more or less the lone standout. I should probably absorb it more, but right now I'm really distracted by Juana Molina. Anyway, if you like warbly-voiced dudes and have an opinion on the new Antony album, leave a comment.

Juana Molina. Seriously, she's great.
